Pass It Forward

I am so so super excited to be part of this new project, Pass it Forward brought to us by Ashley of The Shine Project!

Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card. Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we’re at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I’d give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information… My first name, city, and a description of what I did….Let’s say the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing. From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.

I think this project is so great and will have the potential to really impact people’s lives. Everyone gets so involved in what they personally have going on that we often forget about other people who might be going through something that is bigger than anything we have ever had to deal with and maybe, just maybe paying for their gas or groceries or even just a coffee will be the thing that let’s them know they are not forgotten or alone. That might be the very thing that gets them through that tough time.

Thank you Ashley for letting me be part of the launch of this project!!


Glitz and Glam Swap Reveal

So, remember how I said that I had been a bit of a swappin’ fool the last couple of months? Yeah, well here is the proof! This is the 4th swap I took part in since October! Hubby says I am officially on restriction from entering any more swaps, for at least 2 months. lol

The always gorgeous and hilarious Lindsay and Raven decided to host a Glitz and Glam Swap…now, if you know me at all, you know that Glitz and Glam is totally my thing. I was so excited to see who I was going to be partnered with! I got my email saying I was partnered with Allison who is a sweetheart and it was off to the races. I couldn’t wait to get to know her a little to see what I could get for her that she would love. Allison is a newlywed with a love for Purple. I can so totally work with this!

I got her some great stuff and was so excited to get it sent off to her. Then it was the week of my birthday and she told me that my package should be getting to me right around my birthday. I waited patiently anxiously for the post man to bring me a package and the day after my birthday it came!

Now, I must say for someone who didn’t know me very well Allison totally ‘gets me’! In my package I got:

Kaluha coffee (YUM)
Almond Joy ( I don’t remember telling her this was my favorite candy, but maybe I did…either way, uhm YUMMY!)
Star socks (so cute!)
pen with sparkles!
C post it’s (how cute is that?!)
C ornament/decor (LOVE!)
Big black sparkle earrings (my new fav pair of earrings, BTW!)
Christmas themed kitchen towels – adorbs!
lip gloss (hello, lover!)
nail stuff ( I had been wanting to try these so I’m excited to do that now! Love the zebra print too!)and last but not least,
Naughty coasters (amazeballs!! So freakin love those! haha)

So, to Allison, thank you so much girl! You rocked it! And to Lindsay and Raven, you girls rock for hosting such a fun awesome swap!!
